I stumbled upon this park by accident. I'm visiting from Michigan and I drove into Lincoln to do some geocaching. We are staying in Dorchester and there isn't much to do there. I noticed they had a couple of nice ball fields and a beautiful lake to relax near. There was a large group with lots of children having a picknik and they all seemed to be having a good time. I will try to return.

I enjoy running around Holmes Lake on the gravel. It has an awesome route that it takes you on and is pretty to see as you are running by. It also has a great park. The hills are great in the winter to sled on. The sand volleyball courts are kept nice as well. It is a fun place to be during all the seasons.

Sooo much to do here! Biking, hiking, canoeing, picnics, playground, fishing... the list goes on. Recent trips here including a romantic picnic and book reading in the park. My favorite place to spend the a Sunday.

The park offers trails for biking, hiking and running, softball fields, golf, fishing, sand volleyball, a playground and picnic shelters. If you want to boat, you'll have to bring your own (kayak, canoe, sail boats) Hyde Observatory is open on weekend evenings for stargazing. It's a fun family outing.

Great place to picnic, play, walk, bike or fish! I like that it is not too far out in the boonies. Take a walk around the lake on the trail!
